Silent Cry, Loud Echo: God Heard Me
Even when it seems like we are all alone, God is always with us.
That is the central message in this memoir by Dr. Selene Maya, who was born the youngest of ten children in a Hindu home in Guyana, South America.
She and her siblings grow up living off the land, and she develops a passion for true healing during her adolescent years, working to find answers for herself, her family, and society at large.
At age 14, she immigrates to the United States of America, and it isn’t long before she is working two jobs, including at a department store.
She thinks nothing of it when the store manager—also from Guyana—befriends her, but it’s all a ploy so he can brutally rape her when he gets her alone. From that day on, work is a degrading and humiliating experience.
For years, she suffers from low self-esteem and feels alone, but when all hope seems lost, she cries out to Jesus. He hears her cry and retrieves her from a lonely place to set her feet on solid rock.
Join the author on a real-life Cinderella story that shows the power of perseverance, family, faith, and prayer.
